Preparedness is just now the
great and overshadowing ques
tion before tbe American people.
Everybody is talking about it,
either for or against. A few
months ago monst-r peace pa
rades wese held in the large
cities, and war and preparedness
against war were denounced on
every band. Today you can fird
scarcely a man who can tell you
even tbe month in which one of
those parades was held. They
have been forgotten. A few
weeks ago New York City held a
monster preparedness parade, in
which 145,000 people participa
ted. Chicago immediately fol
lowed suit with one of the great
est parades in the history of this
country, all in tbe interest of pre
paredness. Other cities, large
and small, all over tbe country
caught the fever and paraded for
preparedness. Governors pro
claimed June 3 as Preparedness
Day, and everybody marched and
shouted for preparedness. But
these, too, will be forgotten, for
it is the way of the American
people to do today and forget to
morrow. And as it is in national affair?,
so it is in the smaller confines of
tbe local community. A rainy
